* The same joke is used in the Music/AxisOfAwesome song "Harry Potter and the Drunk Teenage Animals Escaping from Zoos," only with Jordan inserting references to Harry Potter to Benny's serious song about teenage drinking. Partly through Benny just gives up and joins her.

* ''SonicTheHedgehog2SpecialEdition''. Docfuture questions some of the more {{Mind Screw}}y aspects of the game as he [[LetsPlay LPs]] it, but by the final level (after [[BreakingTheFourthWall arguing with a character from the game, and then surviving said character's attempts to kill him in-game]]) he decides to stop worrying and just "embrace the madness". Appropriately enough, [[spoiler:logic is the FinalBoss, and it goes down in a single hit.]]

* Practically a RunningGag in ''FanFic/AshesOfThePast'' in response to [[WeirdnessMagnet Ash]] being involved in or doing something considered crazy. A lot of minor characters end up resorting to this to preserve what remains of sanity they have.

* In an (in)famous sketch, ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken'' showed a new Franchise/GIJoe [[ColdSniper sniper]] recruit named Calvin being introduced to the team, only to be humiliated in front of everyone and given an EmbarrassingNickname ("Fumbles"). [[MistreatmentInducedBetrayal This drives him]] [[FaceHeelTurn to join Cobra]], only for Cobra Commander obliviously gives him an embarrassing nickname as well ("[[ThemeNaming Trouser Snake]]"). At that point Calvin says he doesn't even care anymore, he just wants revenge on the Joes. Which he gets by [[BoomHeadshot headshotting]] every single member of the team, except Duke, who leaves alive, [[CruelMercy telling him to live with it]].

* Subverted by Creator/JohnCWright. After having had a religious experience which he believed was far too unlikely to have a wholly naturalistic explanation to be credible, he converted to Christianity after previously having been a rather committed atheist. Due to the nature of his conversion, he briefly considered that maybe the fundamentalists were correct after all, but decided not to reject science and logic after realizing that {{The Fundamentalist}}'S beliefs made no sense to him even as a Christian.

* ''FanFic/AGemInTheRough'': Upon entering the Grand Line, Peridot began to see just how illogical the Davy Back Fight was. Robin offered her this valuable piece of advice:

** Vivi finally succumbs to the insanity of the Grand Line when [[RatedMForManly Boss negotiates with Franky]] in a {{Pec Flex}}ing duel, shattering his shell in the process. And later somehow getting a new one.

* ''FanFic/VigilanteTendency'': Tsuna gives up on trying to make sense of his life and starts going with the flow somewhere around chapter two or so. When the Vongola come knocking, he's barely phased, and the already insane mafia world quickly find themselves...''discombobulated'' when it comes to him and his friends.

* As quoted above, in the ''WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged'' version of the DragonBallZ movie ''Tree of Might'', Goku is taking his IdiotHero[=/=]CloudCuckooLander schtick UpToEleven by attempting to talk to the giant tree. When Yamcha tries to interject some reason, an offscreen voice (which is actually a member of the BigBad's QuirkyMiniBossSquad) appears to answer for the tree. Yamcha gives up in disgust.
